The Young Turks are Morons of the Highest Calibre

May 30, 2017 // 6 Comments

  The Young Turks are morons of the highest calibre who believe it would be a crime not to publish every thought that tumbles through their head. I have never made my views on them public before, but what they have published recently online pushed me over the edge. They posted a video titled ‘Monsanto Giving People Cancer?’ (because protecting yourself from a lawsuit with that question mark, despite in the video saying their products are giving people cancer, shows how much of a [...]

My Experience Giving a ProGMO Talk at Skeptics Events

April 18, 2017 // 10 Comments

For decades now, organisations like Greenpeace, GM-Freeze, and Friends of the Earth have done a fantastic job convincing the population that GM-food is harmful to humans. To do this, they have quoted scientific literature that claims GMOs have been shown, among other things, to cause cancer, leukaemia, and stomach inflammation; but is there really any truth to these claims? What do the papers these organisations are promoting really say, and do they have any flaws? Or, in actual fact, are GMOs [...]

Why Does Greenpeace Like the Watermelon?

April 9, 2017 // 0 Comments

Last year, I asked the very silly sounding question, ‘Why does Greenpeace like the grapefruit?’ As absurd as it sounds this is probably one of the most important questions to be asking the organisation right now. This is because it exposes a double standard that lies at the core of Greenpeace and shows their opposition to GMOs to be hypocritical and irrational. Today I would like to ask another silly sounding question that, once again, exposes weaknesses in Greenpeace’s arguments against [...]

Anti-GMO Book for Children – Myles Reviews

January 19, 2017 // 0 Comments

Dewi and the Seeds of Doom is the perfect book for indoctrinating your children into an anti-GMO conspiracy whilst at the same time promoting a bit of welsh pride. At first glance, this book is a little on the boring side, but when you step back and think about what the author, Maggie Lyons, is trying to convey, who the caricatures represent, and what action she is actually promoting, it becomes something very different. The book is essentially the views of one woman on the GMO industry and [...]

Anti-GMO Book for Children

January 18, 2017 // 2 Comments

Dewi and the Seeds of Doom is the perfect book for indoctrinating your children into an anti-GMO conspiracy whilst at the same time promoting a bit of welsh pride. Last year I wrote a blog post heavily criticising what I consider to be one of the vilest books ever conceived. Stephanie Messenger’s ‘Melanie’s Marvelous Measles’ is a book aimed towards young children that attempts to convince them that vaccines are ineffective and, rather worryingly, to actively try and contract measles. [...]

Will GMOs Kill Us All? – (QED 2016)

November 5, 2016 // 1 Comment

For decades now, we have been told by organisations like Greenpeace, GM-Freeze, and Friends of the Earth that genetical modified (GM) food is dangerous and has been shown to be harmful to humans.They have done a great job at convincing the population of their dangers by quoting scientific literature that claims GM-food has been shown, among other things, to cause cancer, leukaemia, and stomach inflammation; but is there really any truth to this? What do the papers these organisations are [...]

Why Does Greenpeace Like the Grapefruit?

October 30, 2016 // 3 Comments

“Why does Greenpeace like the grapefruit?” is an important question and one that we should all be asking. This is because it exposes the dogmatic hypocrisy of their anit-GMO stance that lies at the core of the organisation. A GMO by definition is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. However, it might surprise you to hear that there are techniques that can alter the DNA of an organism which do not come under the umbrella term of a [...]

Why does Greenpeace like the grapefruit?

After reading the title of this blog post, I can imagine that the majority of you are expecting to be entertained by a convoluted theory full of interesting but tenuous tidbits. The kind of over-analytical claptrap you find on sites like BuzzFeed that have the veneer of intellectualism, but in reality are nothing more than hollow click-bait. Unfortunately, you are going to be disappointed because as silly as it sounds, “Why does Greenpeace like the grapefruit?” is an important question and [...]
